Home Away From Home

Ann and I are staying in Missouri until the end of October .....we arrived at Silver Dollar city and we have a booth this year on the square.  Doesn't it look grand!  We will be here until October 26th and we would love to meet you!

Each morning at the opening we honor our veterans by having a flag ceremony with the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem right in front of our booth!   What a great way to start the day!

Our first shoppers were two sisters from the Branson area we met last year!  Sandy and Karen two of the sweetest gals and we are so lucky to know them.  

Here are a few shots of the inside of our booth.

Ann was a bit cold the first day we started  the day was damp and cold but we stayed busy.

Today the temperatures were  warmer and the sunshine sure felt good.  

Back home in Oklahoma my mom and sis Jane have been entering contest at the State Fair with their cooking skills.  Mom placed first in the Bisquick contest with her Peach Cobbler winning a blue ribbon and $200!
Little did she know she was also featured on Channel 4 news for winning...congratulations Mom!

My sister, mom and my niece have all won prizes this year at the fair.....They have a few more  contest coming up this week.

Now to back track a little.  Earlier last week Ann and I came out to Missouri a bit early and stopped at Warsaw at the Truman Lake Hook-In and vended. 

It was a wonderful show and we want to thank Patty Wallace of Saltbox Primitive Woolens  and her group they did an outstanding job with putting it all together.  The hospitality was above and beyond!  Thank you so much.
This is a picture of our booth packed to the brim.

Ann is such fun she is so full of energy.

Here we both are and thanks to everyone who stopped by.

This is my good friend Jan she is quite the wool sock knitter.  She has an antique sock machine and I just love the socks she has made.  They are as comfortable as can be. 

We met with Jan and some of her friends for a day of rug hooking and fellowship and we can not thank them enough for their dear friendships!  Thanks to Pam for the hospitality of her home and kitchen what a wonderful group of gals we have truly been blessed.

Now one last thank you.....There has been several people stop by our booth and say they have visited my blog and drove all the way out to see me and meet me or have sent their Mom to visit and say their daughter reads my blog......Do you know how much that means??????  

I will say it again.....I AM TRULY BLESSED IN SO MANY WAYS and thank you to EACH AND EVERYONE THAT STOPS BY TO READ THIS truly does mean so much.

Wishing you a week filled to the brim with sunshine and smiles.

Happy Trails.......Ginger

PS....I'm missing my lil' grands and of course the rest of the family, too.
